    New learning paradigms, continuous progress in the field of information and communication technology, as well as greater commercialisation of education and training are important drivers of the electronic education market. Innovative forms of media-based teaching and learning are being introduced. This paper sketches the likely scope of these market-oriented media-based learning resources. In addition, it outlines promising support systems for an electronic education market View full abstract»

    An auxetic material is one which gets fatter when it is stretched. Thus, unlike most materials, it has a negative Poisson's ratio. This review looks at examples of auxetic materials, the effect the negative Poisson's ratio has on their mechanical properties and how these fascinating new materials can be used in applications as diverse as smart fasteners, replacement blood vessels and curved car door panels. It also considers the benefits of introducing such novel effects in undergraduate teaching View full abstract»

  • Was Newton the first to show that visible light is polychromatic?

    In 1672 the Royal Society published `A letter of Mr Isaac Newton, Professor of the Mathematics in the University of Cambridge, containing his New Theory about Light and Colours', in which Newton announced that he had performed an `experimentum crucis'. He described the use of a particular combination of two prisms that resulted in the production of the now-familiar oblong spectrum of light. This work of Newton is widely quoted as being the first of its type. However, for many years it has been clear that there were others who might have a right to claim that they had already produced similar work. In spite of this, many scientists and historians continue to quote from Newton's 1672 paper in the preambles to their various works on light and optics. This article is an attempt to bring earlier work to the attention of a wider audience View full abstract»

  • Interactive teaching of adaptive signal processing

    Over the last 30 years, adaptive digital signal processing has progressed from being a topic for a strictly graduate-level advanced class in signal processing theory to one that is part of the core curriculum for many undergraduate classes in signal processing. The key reason is the continued advance of communications technology, with its need for echo control and equalisation, and the widespread use of adaptive filters in audio, biomedical, and control applications. This paper reviews the basic theory and applications of adaptive signal processing and also presents information on multimedia teaching methods that are being used on a 24 hour course module on adaptive signal processing. In particular it presents some recent World Wide Web Java programs that were developed for teaching and self-study. Information is provided on how to download and run the Java applet View full abstract»
